What is HIV/AIDS?
  • HIV, also known as human immunodeficiency virus, is the virus that causes AIDS. As a retrovirus, the virus copies its genetic information and takes over the DNA of healthy white blood cells or T-cells in order to replicate itself;
  • AIDS or acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, is a manifestation of an advanced HIV disease stage characterized by breakdown of the immune system which prevents the body from fighting opportunistic diseases. AIDS is clinically defined by a presence of HIV infection and a low level of white blood cells or T-cells or other AIDS-defining opportunistic illnesses. A normal adult has ~500-1500 of T-cells in every microliter(L) of blood, but an AIDS patient has less than 200.
